bitbake: fetch2: Change git fetcher not to destroy old referencespyro
It looks like we're about to see a lot of changes in branch names in repos. If we have the prune option here, those old names are lost, the changes propagate to our source mirrors and our old releases break. We have the force option so any replaced references should be replaced, its only orphaned branches which will now be preserved. I believe this behaviour will cause us fewer problems given the changes that look likely to happen. (Bitbake rev: 08aafc53ba911337d2d3558654b06f294ae634e2) Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
